Childish, I know, but when I wear my Jimmy Choo Glitter Pumps I just can’t stop wiggling my feet about to make them sparkle! These pumps were a bit of an impulse buy, but oh, so joyous! As I walk along the glitter pieces reflect these random rays of light – I’m sure I’ve almost blinded a few people. It’s like having a laser-beam mission control on my feet.
Comfort-wise, these are very nice shoes. You’d hope so, because they’re not cheap, but I never assume that an expensive pair of shoes will be comfortable. My wedding shoes (Louboutins) had to come off after approximately ninety minutes and I spent the rest of the day in my flip-flops! (Long gown, feet hidden, no harm done.) Anyway, these are comfy – they’re also very sturdy and have the best non-slip soles ever. You could traverse the arctic in them. Possibly.
I’ve been wearing my Glitter Choos with jeans, mainly, because I like the contrast between the denim and the sheer glitziness of the footwear, but they’d look equally great with a little dress. As a general rule, I’d say the more glam the footwear, the more casual the outfit should be, for daytime at least. I can’t stand being overdressed during daylight hours, but I can cope with some sparkle on my toes, it makes me feel very…Disney.
I can’t find the exact style of my pumps online, but for an equally glitzy shoe take a look at the Jimmy Choo “Walsh” pump here: www.jimmychoo.com
**UPDATE: since scheduling this post, Jimmy Choo have gone into sale. The Walsh pumps are £186 instead of £265. Just an “FYI” in case you happen to have been tempted! All of the sale items are here.
